OJ lawyers asking Nevada high court to reconsider

By Associated Press


LAS VEGAS — O.J. Simpson's lawyers are asking a Nevada Supreme Court panel to reconsider their appeal of Simpson's Las Vegas armed robbery and kidnapping conviction.

A clerk with the state high court said the request for a rehearing was received Tuesday.

Simpson attorney Yale Galanter tells The Associated Press the three-judge panel overlooked or misunderstood several arguments — including that Simpson lacked the necessary intent for conviction.

Galanter argues Simpson thought he was retrieving personal items when he and other men confronted two sports memorabilia dealers in a Las Vegas casino hotel room in September 2008.

A jury convicted Simpson and co-defendant Clarence "C.J." Stewart last year.

The justices rejected Simpson's appeal last month, but granted Stewart a new trial.

Simpson is serving nine to 33 years in state prison.
